Lela's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Lela's Story...
Lela is a 20# bundle of silky-furred, energetic Sheltie. At eight years old, she is recently spayed and has had all the appropriate veterinary care for an adult dog, including a Home Again microchip and registration. Lela plans to make up for the casual care giving of her previous life and enjoys being the center of attention of her foster mom, Virginia. And Virginia is encouraging Lela to enjoy some of the finer things in life that we provide for our beloved dogs, like cushy dog beds and premium quality food. They enjoy taking long walks together while stopping to smell the flowers along the way. Toys hold no interest for little Lela. Even when her foster sister Kimmy grabs a toy and shakes it, it does not seem to be an invitation to play. Lela is a people pleaser. She will make an extremely devoted companion for an older couple or a single person that would like to build an entire existence around a dog. If given the opportunity, Lela would love to be a lap dog. She will meet your gaze without reservations, looking into your eyes and asking the questions of the universe. “Why am I here? Will I get to stay with you forever? Promise me you won’t abandon me.” We see this kind of behavior in dogs on a daily basis. Heartbreaking questions in the eyes of a dog. Please help us answer their questions. Give your love to a senior dog that will give it back to you many times over.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lela, a Pueblo West Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Pueblo West, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Pueblo West.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pueblo West already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Pueblo West breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pueblo West paves the way for another one to be saved.
